Overview[edit]

The list below shows redirect pages in the main english article namespace to which there are the most links. Multiple links from a single article are only counted once. It was generated on 2nd November 2004 from the 23rd October 2004 database dump.

Preamble[edit]

Links to redirect pages cause the target of the redirect page to appear when linked to. In many (but not all) cases, links should be made directly to the intended article, not to a redirect that points to it. However there are cases where links to a redirect are appropriate (e.g., where a separate article might someday be separated out from the currently redirected article). Edit articles linking to redirects to fix this unless they have an actual difference in meaning. In that case, you may want to replace the redirect with an article.

Many of these can be fixed with bots, but rigorous discussion and consensus should be gathered before making any massive amount of changes. Redirects themselves are harmless, and some redirect targets may change in the future. Choices are best made based on the context of the article.

Regenerating this report[edit]

This report is generated from a Link Analysis Database using the SQL:

select concat( '#[[', art_title, ']] (', links_to, ' articles)' )
from art
where art.art_is_redirect = 1
and art.art_is_stub = 0
and art.art_is_disambig = 0
order by links_to desc
limit 200;

Suggested improvements[edit]

  • Keep it hidden. Otherwise someone may get get the idea that km² should be replaced by square kilometre, or meter should be replaced with metre. -- User:Docu
    The benefits of [[square kilometre|km²]] far outweigh those of the redirected [[km²]]. Guanaco 20:13, 12 Jul 2004 (UTC)
    What are they? It just make the source longer. -- User:Docu
    Keeping the links redirected causes the database to be more cluttered, our search engine rankings to be lower, and users to unnecessarily see things like "(Redirected from km²)". Guanaco 01:25, 14 Jul 2004 (UTC)
    Keeping the links redirected causes the database to be more cluttered, our search engine rankings to be lower is there any authoritative evidence for any of these assertions or are they simply opinion or conjecture? Is "database clutter" an actual problem? olderwiser 15:08, Jan 2, 2005 (UTC)
  • Links to redirects like WikiProject U.S. Counties (Special:Whatlinkshere/WikiProject_U.S._Counties) may be worth fixing, as they link into and out-of article namespace. -- User:Docu
